Today is the beginning
of the Novena to the Holy Spirit . Mr. Serafin has wonderful prayers for this here.

Nunc Sancte nobis Spiritus.

Translation by Venerable John Henry Newman, C.O.

Come, Holy Ghost, who ever One
Reignest with Father and with Son,
It is the hour, our souls possess
With Thy full flood of holiness.

Let flesh, and heart, and lips, and mind,
Sound forth our witness to mankind;
And love light up our mortal frame,
Till others catch the living flame.

Now to the Father, to the Son,
And to the Spirit, Three in One,
Be praise and thanks and glory given
By men on earth, by Saints in heaven.

Verses on Various Occasions
